After recently gracing the cover of Ozone Magazine's March 06 issue, Terror Squad's DJ Khaled is currently finishing his still untitled debut, which was released nationally on March 6, 2006. The LP's lead-single "Holla At Me" features Fat Joe, Paul Wall, Lil Wayne, Pitbull and Rick Ross. The video for "Holla At Me" was shot on March 19th in Miami, FL and MTV2 has been gracious enough to film the video shoot for there "Makes The Video" segment, the 30-minute special was seen on April 10th. Turns out it's the first single from DJ Khaled, a Miami radio personality with a few mix tapes out and some connection to the perennially also-ran Terror Squad crew. "Holla at Me," which feels like a monster already. For one thing, it's a collection of stars that easily equals to greatness. Lil Wayne, Paul Wall, Fat Joe, Rick Ross, and Pitbull. Plenty of the track's appeal comes from the lineup, and so Khaled's talent for coordinating celebrities' schedules probably eclipses his talent for producing rap songs. But it's also pretty striking that all five of these guys totally sublimate their out sized personalities to the track itself, fading away into its boom-stomp until all of them become parts of the beat.
